At AFC, we specialize in helping clients heal from trauma. Emotional and psychological trauma may be caused by a one-time event such as sustaining an injury in combat, a car accident, or natural disaster, but trauma also can arise from ongoing stressful situations, such as growing up in an abusive household, enduring bullying, or suffering with a long-term illness. If you’ve experienced trauma, whether recent or from your childhood, you may currently be struggling with a variety of symptoms, ranging from distressing emotions, fearful memories or flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, feelings of powerlessness and/or worthlessness, an avoidance of anything that reminds you of the trauma, or an inability to form close relationships.
